Yes when you play a Larrivée for the first time that is what happens, although sometimes you may fall off the chair. My advice would be to play a few more Larrivées and find one you love. Hint - try an L series body before you make your mind up.

I decided to try a Larrivee this past Saturday. It was a J-05. It was used at a GC and when I got there I had the acoustic room to myself...lucky. I brought my own tuner and  capo; I tuned and began playing. It was nice! What a fine guitar. Then, I tuned it 1/2 step flat, like I normally tune. By Grabthar's Hammer, what a difference!! I actually almost fell of the chair. I like a Jumbo a half step detuned...well, any guitar actually.

Great guitars! Listen to these folk's advice.
